What is the best Windows installer, either open-source or less than $1K, that supports MSI, has a decent GUI, supports upgrades and has a quick learning curve?

Walter GygliAfter having tested several ones I came to the conclusion that there is no Installer that fits your criteria. We have thus switched to WiX. There is a WiX-Editor that let's you do some changes in a sort of GUI but WiX was and is a lot of code writing. It produces clean MSI-Installers that are very much liked by system engineers on the client side. WiX is free but has a long learning curve (calculate 2 weeks until you have the first working MSI for an average complex installer).
